Janma rashi = Guru -ruled Meena
Meena portion of Chandra in Purvabhadrapada (dancers)
ruled by Guru
Chandra in Uttarabhadrapada "The regulator"
ruled by Shani
Chandra in Revati "the pied piper"
ruled by Budha
* occupies the 9th-from Chandra's Swakshetra-Karkata
* rules the 5th-from-Moon
Due to Chandra-Meena ruling 5th-from-itself, one may feel a deep affinity for the children, the students, the creative arts, for celebrity and celebration, and for unique expressions of divine intelligence. This placement provides a natural intellectualism and intuitive scholarship.
Due to Chandra-Meena residing in the 9th-from Chandra's Swakshetra-Karkata, one is typically emotionally attached to the roles of university professor, philosopher, spiritual guide and preceptor, guru, and indoctrinator. The conditions in the bhava of Meena may indicate the nature of the philosophical role.
The conflict is typically emotional communication with the two partners being generally not on the same wavelength.
Needs to teach, preach, and travel; often multicultural and peripatetic. May seek the priesthood. Likes to swim. Generally maintains a philosophical or doctrinal (9) relationship toward parents (Chandra) and often has an affectionate relationship to the father's people or professor or religious preceptor.
A wise person but somewhat patronizing. For Thula radical lagna, Meena-Chandra-6 may signal doctrinal conflict between parochial and global views.
Emotional need to live on the bridge between the astral world of the spirit guides and the material world of human society.
Needs psychic nourishment taken in sanctuary, meditation, prayer, privacy, sleep, and dreams.
If you have a Meena-Somana person in your life, honor their knowledge of past, present, and future. History really does repeat itself. Listen to their long stories; allow them to interpret your dreams.
Also good for concerns of 5th-from-5th including politics and theatre, gaming and speculation, creative intelligence , literature and performance arts, and most of all children.
Nurtures a safe, creative space for the children.
Meena-Chandra may find that whatever planned misalignments requiring realignment attention come into one's path, the transcendent enjoyment of children will restore awareness of the presence of the divine.
Like Pushanya the Ferryman , Meena-Chandra is constantly traveling between two worlds :
One possesses a natural affinity for children, all forms of teaching , and transactions which occur upon the bridge between the astral world and the material world.
as ruler of the natural 12th house, Somana is "Bred for imagination ." Meena-Chandra ponders the depth and breadth of the cosmos, searching for the conduits= conduction routes of Pushan the cowherd, which connect one field of meaning to the next. Meena is a sign of oceans, dolphins, universes, children, symbols, and dreams. It is the land of the astral bridge, the interstitial or liminal realities of dreams and illusions, a world of swirling images and the pathways between them.
When this native looks in the mirror, s/he sees a Visionary, a dream reader, an energy gauge, broad knower and commenter-upon vast movements in history and civilization.
Somana-Meena = enchanted by children and spirits; magnetically attracts them; speaks for them. These natives channel a vast intuitive creativity. Yet the results may manifest solely on the astral plane, invisible to most humans. They neither seek nor decline the teaching role for which their wisdom suits them.
The fundamental emotional urge is to deepen one's understanding of the infinitely complex and subtle relationships between all beings. One's actual success (or not) in absorbing the knowledge and providing inspirational or intuitive guidance to others, depends on the vitality of Guru.
For the Meena-Chandra nativity, both the relationship of the native with the father and the relationship of the mother toward the father are inherently conflicted due to Surya rules 6th-from-Chandra.
Other characteristics that profile the father must be considered, such as Surya's rashi, incoming drishti, and bhava --as well as the dharmapathi-9 and ruler of 9th-from-Chandra. However the animosity between mother and father from the earliest days of life tends to afflict the native's expectations of the father who is sensed even in childhood as somehow adversarial to the mother's interests.
The father may be a good person and benefit society, depending of Surya and the dharmesha-9 . However within the family the mother and her child may be prone to accuse the father of wrongdoing (6, accusations) and unable to summon a full trust of him (6, distrust).
The stronger is maternally supportive Chandra, the more adversarial the Father's personality (Surya) may seem.
If Guru = swakshetra (Dhanushya, Meena) or uttama- Karkata, the Meena-Chandra native = highly gifted with intuitive intelligence.
One may display a breadth of knowledge in wide-cast fields such as economics, philosophy, and history.
In Meena, brilliant intuition and very fertile, but rashi lagna here determines whether there is material distinction or not.
Women with Meena Chandra
Women with Meena Chandra
Emotionally philosophical and socially inclusive, as are their mothers.
Lower body is generally wider of build; flesh-body becomes 'pear shape' in maturity. Reflective in their habits. Emotionally wise but generally rather quiet preferring a meditative awareness to intervention in the life choices of others. A teacher to their children.
Meena-Chandra ladies may prefer a lifestyle that supports their habit of sanctuary-seeking retreat. She feels a need for self-enclosure via invisibility. The need is often met by means of social disappearance including long wanders in her imagination or physically in foreign lands.
Chandra-Meena folk know you; they know all humankind. They utilize guidance from life forms which others might not be able to access; they have psychic and spiritual "trail-guide" information which others might not recognize or value.
They can show you the way out of suffering, by compassionately pointing out the errors of the past, the suffering of the present, and wisdom of your future. Don't punish their apparent indecisiveness.
Chandra-Meena folk = sensing subtle patterns in the great psychic ocean which surrounds us (the astral plane) - give them time. Children will be especially sensitive to psycho-emotional fluctuations; they require protection from hard-shelled predators.
Parents and bosses may seem vague and indefinite; give them time, too, to find the most compassionate way. The time you spend waiting for Meena-Somana wisdom is a valuable spiritual investment.
Chandra-Purvabhadra = Guru. Meena's psycho-spiritual guidance roles feature global viewpoint and humanitarian teaching-preaching
Chandra-Uttarabhadra = Shani. Meena's psycho-spiritual guidance roles feature institutional governance and corporate structure
Chandra-Revati = Budha. Meena's psycho-spiritual guidance roles feature messaging and teamwork.
Contractual Partnerships and Trusts
To find characteristics of spouse-partner for multiple marriages, count in patterns of 8 steps (first marriage 7th-from-Chandra = Kanya, 2nd marriage 2nd-from-Chandra = Mesha, 3rd marriage 9th-from-Chandra = Vrischika, etc.)
7th from Vrishabha-Chandra = Kanya.
Traits of poverty, illness, and self-medication are possible. Overall a pattern of service to others is predominant. Medical professions are well represented in Kanya.
For Meena Chandra, partners are distinguished by the traits of Budha-ruled Kanya. Critical, logical, narrative and argumentative in character, the partners of Meena-Chandra discusses and debates, criticizes and complains. Excellent placement for a partner who is a physician or pharmacist; however if Chandra occupies a dusthamsha-6-8-12 the partner is likely to manifest ailments.
Guru and Budha do not tolerate each other well thus relationships particularly marriage may be more stressful than supportive for the Meena female. However, her Chandra-Kanya partner benefits from her wise counsel.
Life-partner is service-oriented (Kanya) and often suffers from health problems, including possible issues with malnutrition, digestive conflict, and substance addictions.
The partner's vitality may be consumed by health concerns, financial worries, and interpersonal conflicts. There may be minimal energy available to support and develop the partnership. The partner may hail from a lower social class, or serve the needs of those experiencing imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, betrayed, sick, polluted, or poor.
|Chandra rules 5th-from-Chandra|| |
Remarkably auspicious placement for spiritual guidance and poetic creativity = 9th-from-swakshetra [Karkata].
Intuition, clairsentience, meditative awareness, and divinatory perceptions are opened.
Often a world-wanderer. Comfortable in the company of philosophers and priests. Shelters many travellers. Chandra-Mangala yoga can produce significant wealth. However Meena-Chandra is more likely to donate wealth toward the welfare of religious concerns such as ashrama, monasteries, and temples than to keep money in one's own pockets. Enjoys wealth but does not much accrue wealth unless some other graha makes acquisitiveness.
Parenting = Chandra-Meena
Chandra-Meena's parenting style = guidance, suggestion, cultivation of the children's imagination, offering children the gift of privacy, the gift of meditation, the gift of prayer and communion with the spirits.
Children are shown the visionary bridge between the worlds of material life and the worlds of the ancestors, the path to self-realization, and The reality of spirit.
Chandra-Meena parents want above all"self-realized"and intuitive children who understand the nature of their own imaginative spiritual pathway
5th-from-Chandra = Karkata
during Vimshottari periods of Chandra, Kumbha -related matters create a nutrient drain (12th-from) upon the emotional vitality
Energy-drainers = emotional losses and erosion of identity + vital life-force power =
are caused by
however they flourish when in any type of"guidance" role, especially the explicitly psychic guru-guide or when shepherding children like the Pied Piper of Hamlin
6th-from Meena = disagreement-distrust-dispute-divorce = Simha
Chandra-Meena experiences emotional conflict regarding Simha-type things:
the problematic 6th-from-Chandra = rashi of Simha
Graha in Simha represent emotional adversaries
rogesha-6 Surya = Meena-Chandra implicitly feels conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy. May feel annoyed and upset with:
The Meena-Chandra lifetime = easier if Simha rashi has no tenant graha..
Predisposition to Injury and Ailment
As a general rule, Meena Chandra is somewhat prone to injury from Simha things = flamboyant, overly theatrical or self-centered actions, sunburn, spicy foods, pitta conditions, excessive exterior heat, and too much center-stage attention without down-time.
8th-from-Chandra = Thula
animosity via Simha and Surya
Meena-Chandra are imaginative, clairvoyant beings who tend to suffer built-in emotional disappointment with an insensitive father and father-figures, yielding lifelong ego-conflicts as a result .
Having been disappointed or annoyed by male-ego excesses early in life, one may feel a deep distaste for things Simha = celebrity, royalty, politics, theatre, genius, personal brilliance - feeling that one prefers to live a quiet life.
Nevertheless karma brings one into awkward 6/8 karmic battle with these behaviors.
One will eventually coordinate the conflict and take one's place in center stage (particularly if there are graha in Simha's bhava) because Guru lord of Chandra is a friendly mate of Surya.
From the emotional perspective of Chandra-Meena, Simha -type agents indicate animosity, disappointment, accusation, toxicity, distrust
|radical Chandra in Meena|| |
Trouble from Zukra * Marriage, Promises, Vows
Chandra-Meena indicates that the emotional core is oriented to meditation, spiritual guidance, and deep retreat into The inner worlds of imagination and prayer. However Professor Zukra's portfolio includes the eruptive force of new identities (8) and the mental chatter-discourse-signaling of 3 (8th-from-8th). Zukra is an agent of discovery and innovation, but also of disruption toward the meditative clairsentient Meena status.
Zukra's periods tend to generate surprise relationships which may cause significant upheaval to the naturally placid, psychically sensitive emotional identity.
By contrast to Zukra, Mangala is a friend toward Brihaspati ruler of Meena, and also Mangala rules the relative 2-9 angles from Chandra-Meena lagna. Broadly speaking, the agents of Kuja bring financial (2) and wisdom (9) benefits. Mangala agents may include young men, soldiers, athletes, hunters, dancers, innovators, pioneers, miners, plumbers, drivers, and all who act in vigorous pursuit of a goal. Depending of course upon the total picture of influences including the radical lagna, vimshottari periods of Mangala tend to be invigorating and philosophically enriching for the Chandra-Meena nativity.
A different effect is predicted for Zukra bhukti and in particular the 20-year long Vimshottari periods of Zukra which occurs during mid-life (or earlier for Revati born). Zukra produces conditions of sudden emotional identity change induced by shocking conversations which reveal secrets and propel the native into life-changing transformations. Depending on Zukra's location, the scenario can (but does not have to) include a role for secret sweets (including hidden alcohol and undisclosed intimate relationships).
Marriage and alliances, contracts and expectations of promise-fulfillment, relationships with women, experience of visual beauty, music, arts and design, and harmony-seeking behaviors of all kinds are disrupted by a pattern of unexpected discovery and emergence of hidden forces. It is often a challenge to maintain enduring relationships in a climate of honesty and full disclosure; thus Chandra-Meena may develop a coping method of not requesting full knowledge and superficially maintaining the appearance of harmony even when churning changes are operating just beneath the surface of the public facade.
s urprising, unexpected relationships may emerge which can be perceived to cause ego destruction and rebirth of the psycho-emotional core. There may be considerable periods of between-state identity flux during which the native has no fixed, consensus-reality identity and must negotiate life as a work in progress due to the disruptive influence of a spouse-partner or contractual vow.
Details of the circumstances of the catastrophic change are indicated by the rashi and bhava of Zukra.
More example situations 3-8 Zukra vis-a-vis Chandra
Chandra-Meena paired with a Zukra-6 (Zukra-Simha in 6th-from-Chandra or Zukra in 6th-from-radical lagna)
...may be scripted to undergo significant substance abuse (alcohol, sweets, numbing drugs, addictive pleasures) along with broken promises in alliance.
Pleasuring imbalances may be the method that the spirit has chosen to experience rejuvenation and change via encountering the addictions in a therapeutic healing process (8), as one uses the medical, emotional, and social imbalance conditions as a narrative to negotiate one's experience of identity transformation. The mother's relatives and the physicians are often significant agents of the mandate for transformation of health conditions.
Chandra-Meena paired with a Zukra-9 (Zukra-Simha in 9th-from-Chandra or Zukra in 9th-from-radical lagna)
...may be scripted to undergo significant dharmic upheaval in the belief catechisms, including encounters with disruptive phenomenological views of reality (theories, doctrines, scriptural exegesis). The entire worldview may be challenged by Zukra-related agency such as marriage alliance, contractual vows, or covenant.
Upheavals in doctrinal belief and convictions of faith may be the method that the spirit has chosen to experience rejuvenation and change via encountering the presumptions underlying the interpretive-perceptual framework in a therapeutic healing process (8), as one uses the philosophical incongruences and relationship imbalance conditions as a narrative to negotiate one's experience of identity transformation. The father and his relationships are often a significant element of the mandate for transformation of received belief.
|Badhaka -sthana = harming-houses|| |
Badhaka-sthana = 7th-from = Kanya
Budha = badhesha
Thus Budha-ruled Chandra in Revati may have a challenging time in the early childhood years due to the incompatibility of Budha's sharply mentalized, discriminating, highly verbal portfolio versus the anti-discrimination agenda of inclusion, broadly encompassing Guru.
However, after early childhood, Chandra in Revati typically triumph via song, which melds the inclusive power of tonal sound (Guru) with the specific power of verbal lyrics (Budha).
Contractual Partnerships and Trusts = 7th-from-Chandra = Kanya
Perhaps the most difficult of the 12 marriage angles, 7th from Meena-Chandra = Kanya . The partner = "disagreement and criticism" can't be pleased".
The partner often develops health problems (Kanya). The disease condition is not always obvious at the time of marriage ceremony, but often the condition is indeed known to both parties and they accept this reality.
Meena = a shepherd-guide-healer (Pazu-pati) and Meena will try to correct the spousal imbalance-seeking-a-remedy by"showing the Way". However often the unhealthy condition is deeply karmic in nature and acceptance of the partner's disease is ultimately required.
Any graha in Kanya rashi will add focus to Kanya's inherent lack of equability .
uttama-Budha may indicate high craft in logical (Budha) argumentativeness and computation (attorneys, mathematicians, financiers) while nichha-Zukra might indicate private (12) relationships with women (Zukra) which are adversarial (12th from 7th) to marriage.
Kanya's ruler Professor Budha is a very impressionable graha; therefore the disposition of Budha must be known before drawing any conclusions about the nature of Chandra-Meena's alliances.
One positive expression of 7th-from-Meena-Chandra = Kanya's affiliation with professional medicine. The Meena-Chandra native who partners with a physician, pharmacist, maker of medicaments, curadera, or other medical practitioner may have better results.
another favorable professional outcome can be partner = expert in argumentation in sociology of poverty and class conflict, medical treatments, epidemiology and disease vectors, matters of military strategy, usury, loans, chief accountant, litigation or criminal attorney, pharmaceutical technology, toxicology or pollution science.
Kanya's out-of-balance condition can manifest inherent disharmony at several levels:
such as chronic blaming, argumentativeness , excessively submissive or excessively dominating inner narratives, paranoia, oppositional-defiant syndrome, bi-polar and related disorders, fear of balanced mental state, narcissistic anxiety(lack of empathy for others) chronic self-disruption
such as inability to accept any proposed set of spiritual principles, chronic atheism, rejection of cooperative agreement with divine presence, refusal to balance the mind , incapacity to meditate
| Males - Zukra related stress via 3 and 8 + via women
especially marriage partner |
Females - Zukra related stress via 3 and 8
| Because Zukra is an inharmonious graha from the Meena-Chandra lagna, the end of Zukra Mahadasha will signal a great release of stress and pressure to perform emotionally unsuitable tasks. |
Two of the most awkward items for the Meena-Chandra person are
Vrishabha-related wealth-hoarding (although the idea-3 of financial wealth banked is attractive, the job of collecting is mentalized-3 not sensualized adequately enough to maintain the attention) and Thula-related (8) tasks such as maintaining relationship balance via adjustability and constant renegotiation of agreements.
Meena does not naturally devote too much attention to relationships because 8 is apprehended as being a constantly changing cycle of death and rebirth. The emotional orientation toward human-to-human relationships = sudden changes and abrupt endings with great rebirths.
Meena does very well however in the field of unmediated contact with the Divine via clairsentient, reflective, and imaginative prayer.
Generally this Zukra-imbalance-seeking-a-remedy is true for any man with a Meena-Chandra, although the nature of the tasks will vary with the placement of Zukra.
Thula radical lagna = Libra
Chandra-Meena = karmesha-10 in 6 = 9th from swakshetra
Chandra in 9th-from-swakshetra-10th; the native and one's father will have wisdom regarding the function of social governance and large social hierarchies. However this does not prevent conflict and disappointment through agency of the significators of bhava-9.
Agents of animosity , loss of agreement, broken promises, disappointment, disease, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy and social conflict include:
Disappointment and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in the professional career. One's work is under-recognized or overtly dishonored (although there is improvement in periods of Chandra.)
Must choose a ministry of service without adequate institutional support from government and corporate leadership. Health problems due to emotional stress from professional over-commitment while striving for ineffable public recognition.
Prone to overweight (Guru) and complications of childbirth (females). Both males and females have emotional stress from death of romantic lovers, political ideals, or children. Stress zone = feet.
| MALES |
Chandra in Meena Rashi
| "These people are short and rather stocky or plump. They have round small heads with bulgy eyes, complexions medium to dark. |
They are very romantic and dreamy and through love they are easily lead by the opposite sex often to the point of being dominated by the loved one.
Easy, pliable natures, somewhat unstable and undependable on the surface, but with a quiet determination to accomplish if their minds are once made up.
However, they should learn to say"No" since they are easily influencedby others, and they may often be forced into the embarrassing position of having committed themselves to two conflicting forms of action simply because they allow themselves to drift in both directions at the same time. Not that they are dishonest or tricky, but simply that they seem to be incapable of resisting pressure from others.
They are found in such positions as nurses, hospital attendants, voluntary workers in charitable institutions, waiting on others, attending to the personal wants of others.
They are modest and retiring, lead very quiet and unobtrusive lives, never initiating anything or leading any movement but content to do their part no matter how irksome it may be. They are fond of music , the sound of which will always bring the tears to their eyes as these people are quite emotional, yet not excitable.
Reading and writing are their relaxations from service of others and they may write fiction, particularly stories of romance and intrigue.
These people do not enjoy the best of health, being subject to colds, kidney and stomach trouble. They must be extremely careful of their diet and should never drink alcoholic beverages.
They are somewhat absent-minded and forgetful of the little everyday things, but have long memories of past events.
| FEMALES |
Chandra in Meena Rashi
| "Recognized by their round, pleasant, affable faces, cheeks which are inclined to be puffy, large liquid eyes, which are very prominent and which may protrude, retrousse noses and soft mobile mouths. When they talk or laugh, the gums and teeth are very noticeable. |
These women are quietly emotional and their eyes will fill with tears at the least provocation.
They are dreamy and inactive , easily influenced to a point, but extremely stubborn once their minds are made up.
They are sensitive, not only with regard to what they consider affronts to themselves, but also with regard to the feelings of others. They will go to great lengths even to the point of involved and complicated deceptions simply to avoid hurting other people.
They are modest, kind, courteous and lovable, soft and good-natured, have somewhat nervous temperaments and are exceedingly romantic. They love poetry and music and their enjoyment of the arts is emotional rather than intellectual.
These women are always ready to help the needy and to sacrifice themselves to those in distress or want. They prefer to give actual services for charitable purposes rather than money and one quite frequently finds them in social service work and allied endeavors, not generally as organizers but as workers.
They may be teetotalers if other signs point that way, but many of them are addicted to drinking, in spite of the fact that they are not able to cope with it.
They are very seldom found owning wealth or property of their own, which has been acquired by their own direct efforts in a business way.
The health of these women is not robust, but they are capable of enduring quietly, uncomplainingly, any ills from which they may suffer."
| Chandra Mahadasha |
for nativities containing Chandra in Meena Rashi
| "From a health standpoint, this period may be almost tragic. |
The individual will be a source of worry and anxiety to his family at that time. Many individuals with Moon in Pisces at birth, during the Moon period, contract spinal meningitis or infantile paralysis, and unless great care is taken, there is difficulty in recovering.
The chances of contracting this disease and of recovery from it, will depend in large measure, on the aspects which other planets make to the Moon.
They may either aggravate or modify what seems to be inherent in the conditions which confront the individual during this period."
Das commentary :
Moon = Meena
"... wavering, changeable, lacking in concentration and stability,
Reserved and retiring, eloquent, gifted,
capable of winning over even your adversaries,
a polite speaker, serves the leader,
likes water, liberal."
"Moon is aspected by Mercury,
and Moon is in Pisces."
"You are surrounded by a number of exceptional mates or partners.
"If the Moon is in Pisces, Meena-Chandra will
be interested in sailing and be liberal."
